New Heathrow Airport CEO tasked with third runway push

Heathrow Airport has made an internal appointment in their search for a new chief executive. John Holland-Kaye, whose previous post was Airport Development Director, has been tasked with spearheading Heathrow’s third runway proposal.

Mr Holland-Kaye joined the Heathrow Airport executive team back in 2009 and has overseen the building work of Terminal 2. Retail income at the airport as well as increased passenger satisfaction has been credited to Mr Holland-Kaye’s leadership.

Outgoing CEO Matthews said: “John has played a pivotal role in the delivery of the new Terminal 2, which is a further important step in the transformation of Heathrow. John has also been heavily involved in developing the new approach to Heathrow expansion which has been shortlisted by the Airports Commission.”

On this new appointment Mr Holland-Kaye said: “I am very proud to have been chosen to succeed Colin. We have worked closely together for the last five years to improve passenger experience, efficiency and resilience, to a point where Heathrow is increasingly seen as Europe’s hub of choice.”
